Manufacturer labeling that uses the phrase "should" when referring to a beyond-use date or timeframe for use shall be construed by the licensee as the required beyond-use date of the device. If no such beyond-use date exists, the dangerous drug product may only be used for up to six hours following preparation. These devices shall be prepared using aseptic technique and procedures shall be in place to minimize the potential for contact with nonsterile surfaces and introduction of particulate matter or biological fluids. Unless administered immediately, the drug device described in this paragraph shall bear a label listing the name of the device (if not legible), date, and time prepared.

(2) The reconstitution of a conventionally manufactured sterile dangerous drug product with no intervening steps in accordance with the manufacturer's labeling for administration, and the beyond-use dating indicated on the manufacturer's labeling.

If no such beyond use date or timeframe exists, the dangerous drug product may only be used for up to six hours following preparation. These drug products shall be prepared using aseptic technique and procedures shall be in place to minimize the potential for contact with nonsterile surfaces and introduction of particulate matter or biological fluids. Unless administered immediately, the drug product described in this paragraph shall bear a label listing the name of the drug (if not legible), date, and time prepared.

(3) The preparation, reconstitution or dilution of a conventionally manufactured nonsterile dangerous drug product with no intervening steps in accordance with the manufacturer's labeling for administration and beyond-use dating. Manufacturer labeling that uses the phrase "should" when referring to a beyond-use date or timeframe for use shall be construed by the licensee as the required beyond-use date of the drug product. If no such beyond-use date exists, the dangerous drug product shall be assigned a beyond-use date in accordance with USP <795>. Unless administered immediately, the drug product described in this paragraph shall bear a label listing the name of the drug (if not legible), date, and time prepared.

(4) The dilution of a conventionally manufactured sterile dangerous drug product (e.g., diluting or mixing into a syringe to administer directly to the patient).
